On my twist on classic bourbon cocktails I decided to make THE original cocktail with a twist. I used rum instead of bourbon. I went for something older than usual to get more character in the drink. Hope you enjoy it...


The original cocktial. The Old Fashioned. So many ways to do this drink and also so many ways how NOT to do it.

When I started making cocktails at home and practicing recipes, this is one cocktail I could always count on.

It was always a hit within friends that didn’t know it, I could always mix it up (bourbon, rye, tequila; rum) and is a nice step into the cocktail world for those drinkers that insist that if is not neat, is sh*t!

In this recipe I used rum but most brown Spirits would do.

The Old Fashioned

2 oz Flor se Caña Rum 12 yo

0.25 oz simple syrup

3 dashes of Angostura bitters

Add all the ingredients in a mixing glass with ice. Stir until silky cold, pour over a big ice cube in a double old fashioned glass.

Squeeze an orange peel on top and garnish with a Luxardo cherry.
